When I saw the Merry Monday challenge included using plaid ribbon, I knew I had to get a card made. I have trouble using ribbons that aren't totally plain & wanted to finally use some of this piece I bought who knows when. It does help to pull out the ribbon first & match the inks & papers to it. I ended up using products from 3 of the companies I was first introduced to when I began stamping & still love today: Hero Arts--branch, DeNami--pine cone, Penny Black--word die.
My inks are Memento Olive Grove & Espresso Truffle. I used my Gelly Roll Clear Star pen on the needles & Frosted Lace Stickles on the pine cones. Due to the difference in time zones, think I get to add this at Pixies Snippets Playground since all the cardstock came from my scrap boxes. A simple traditional card, but it's a look I like. Thanks for your visit--I always appreciate it.
